Have you ever thought of a miraculous juice capable of greatly accelerating weight loss and still deflate the body? Well then, it exists. It is made with a combination of natural items that are excellent for measuring and losing weight.
There are some natural secrets capable of acting as true slimming miracles, as long as they are associated with low-calorie diets and physical activities. In this way, it is possible to lose weight incredibly quickly and in a healthy way.
The use of juices is highly recommended, as they can combine the slimming benefits of various compositions found in fruits, roots and herbs. Teas can also do, but they cannot be used as snacks and breakfasts, as some types of juice can.
Therefore, Remédio Caseiro invited nutritionist Rayane Tôrres, a specialist in sports nutrition, to explain the recipe for the miraculous juice to lose weight. It also explains the benefits of each ingredient.
Without further ado, let’s show you the recipe for the best juice to lose weight and then explain why it has this potential. Look:
Weight-loss metabolic juice recipe
- 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseed flour
- ½ lemon
- 1 cup of green tea
- 1 teaspoon of honey to sweeten (optional)
How to prepare the juice is quite simple. First, remove the juice from the orange and then squeeze the lemon inside, without letting the seeds fall. Add a tablespoon of flaxseed flour to the juice. Finally, add green tea and a teaspoon of honey (if you prefer, as the presence of honey reduces the potency of the juice). Mix well, add ice and serve.
Composition of ‘miraculous’ juice
The juice to lose weight is actually a suchá, a drink that combines the benefits of juices and teas. O Remédio Caseiro has already explained what talás are and some recipes, in “Learn how to make talá to lose weight and its benefits” .
In this case, the juice is composed of citrus fruits, rich in vitamin C and liquids; flaxseed flour, which is a source of fiber; and green tea, a powerful antioxidant. Check out the potential of each ingredient in the miracle juice:
The nutritionist explains that, contrary to what many people think, orange juice does not cause excess weight. Furthermore, it does not need to be avoided in cases of reduction or maintenance of body weight.
“This assumption was born from the belief that orange sugar causes weight gain, but that’s not quite how it works,” explains Rayane. According to the expert, these sugars (such as orange) are metabolized in the body in the form of glucose, which activates neurological receptors, resulting in satiety.
Also according to Rayane, orange is a citrus fruit and contains nutrients that benefit the human body, such as:
- Vitamin C: which works by removing and stopping free radical reactions, responsible for premature aging
- Flavonoids: also have antioxidant and vasoprotective activity, acting to increase diuresis and maintain endothelial function (blood circulation)
- Folic acid: important in the formation of the fetus, fights anemia and cardiovascular diseases
- Fibers : bring improvements in cases of constipation
- Potassium: helps in muscle, bone, nervous and circulatory health.
In addition, the nutritionist also states that some studies show that orange juice consumed regularly may be related to the reduction of overweight and obesity.
Green tea (Camellia sinensis L.)
According to the expert, green tea contains polyphenolic components, which include flavanols (higher concentration of catechins), flavandiols, flavonoids and phenolic acids. All these elements have pharmacological activities, inhibit lipid oxidation and the proliferation of fungi.
The polyphenols present are able to act to decrease serum glucose concentrations, improving resistance to insulin action. In this way, they are effective as adjuvants in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
“ Green tea also has a thermogenic effect, due to the high concentrations of catechin-polyphenols and caffeine, which speeds up the metabolism, increasing energy expenditure”, explains Rayane. In addition, tea has other functions such as: increased blood pressure, lipolysis, gastric secretions, diuresis and activation of the central nervous system.
The nutritionist also comments that teas made from the Camellia sinensis L. plant (green tea and white tea) have been found to be able to promote a reduction in weight and body fat, in addition to helping to prevent and treat obesity , cardiovascular disorders and dyslipidemias.
It is noteworthy that they do not bring great weight loss, just help in the reduction process with the help of proper nutrition and regular exercise.
According to the nutritionist, “linseed is classified as a functional food that helps to modulate the risk of cardiovascular disease because it has a high content of unsaturated lipids such as omega-3, which causes a beneficial effect on the body”, she explains. She explains that flaxseed is a hypoglycemic, hypocholesterolemic and hypotriglyceridemic, due to α-linolenic acid, fibers and lignans.
In addition, she claims that fatty acids reduce serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations, due to reduced hepatic production of very low density lipoproteins or, as they are also called, VLDL ( very low density lipoprotein ).
Thus, flaxseed also helps in weight reduction, being a great ally of low-calorie diets.
The lemon is also a known people who practice physical exercises in order to lose weight. Known source of vitamin C, the fruit offers flavor, vitality and benefits that accelerate weight loss and maintenance of youth.
Rayane explains that lemon is “rich in vitamin C, which is an antioxidant and helps to remove free radicals, contains vitamin B1 and B2, phosphorus, silicon, calcium, iron, has fiber and polyphenols that are found in the peel.”
practice physical activities
Remember that despite being known as a “miracle” juice, no recipe can act as a miracle to lose weight. For its effect to happen, it is necessary to associate its regular use with healthy lifestyle practices and a low-calorie diet without excesses.
The nutritionist says that proper nutrition helps to reduce the risk of disease, as well as weight loss with the help of physical exercise. Thus, some foods associated with a good diet can help with weight loss, but not actually cause it.
